Marijuana Control Board appointment

A woman involved in a failed ban on marijuana operations in Fairbanks has
been appointed to the board that regulates Alaska’s legal marijuana

Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy appointed Vivian Stiver to the seat that has
been held by industry representative Brandon Emmett.

The law setting up the five-member Marijuana Control Board calls for up
to two members who are actively involved in the industry though one of
those seats could go to a member of the general public. Nicholas Miller
retains an industry seat on the board.

Matt Shuckerow, a Dunleavy spokesman, says it’s no secret Stiver “holds
a certain skepticism for legal marijuana use,” which he says is a viewpoint
other Alaskans share.

He says Dunleavy thinks her appointment will help bring a valuable
perspective to the board.
